Cable Bahamas Group is Giving a Helping Hand to Hands for Hunger
Cable Bahamas and a host of corporate partners team up to stage a Pantry Takeover of Hands for Hunger.
Cable Bahamas Group is endeavoring once again to do its part as a responsible corporate citizen by partnering with one of the nations largest NGO’s Hands 4 Hunger on a campaign called Giving a Helping Hand.
The centerpiece of the campaign which extends from April 1st -30th is a Pantry Takeover where the Cable Bahamas Group sponsored the cost of stocking the Hands for Hunger Pantry for 1 Week. This means that all persons who visit the pantry between April 4th and 8th would receive groceries provided by the Cable Bahamas Group. This also includes countless emergency food boxes which are offered to walk in clients and delivered to others on a weekly roster.
The company took the initiative a step further by putting their manpower where the money is. Representatives from the Cable Bahamas Group and its partners, which include Kanoo, Bahamasair, Supervalue, Margaritaville, Sun Oil Ltd., and Coca Cola have agreed to staff the Pantry with volunteers from each of their teams.
Mr. Franklyn Butler, CEO at Cable Bahamas, spoke during his volunteer shift at the pantry saying, “This is what it’s really all about. Initiatives like Giving a Helping Hand, where we don’t just donate our treasure but also offer our time encapsulate what it means for us to be a good corporate citizen. I’m proud of our team and all of the corporate sponsors who got together to arrange this amazing project.”
Aliv CEO Mr. John Gomez also noted that he found his volunteer shift to be particularly rewarding. “I love being able to work on projects like these. They really warm my heart and give me a sense that what I’m doing is making a difference in the community. I’m proud to see how many members of our team have turned out to volunteer and I look forward to doing more things like this in the future.
